A quick trip up the hill to see this place. Costs to enter but well worth it for the quality 360 views of the city and the history tour. We did the AI (no extra cost) and whilst a little childish, gave a great sense...More

We visited Barone after going to St Michael's fortress as admission was included within the same ticket. (You can visit each within 7 days). Although smaller than St Michael's, Barone offered the best views of Sibenik. Allowing you to see the harbour and channel all...More

We went there by car and didn’t have to walk uphill, there are plenty of parking spots next to the fort. Though nobody provided us the gear for the augmented reality; I would have liked to see what it is about. The view is stunning...More

Your ticket to St. Michael’s Fortress includes admission to its sister, the Barone Fortress. Set a bit further back than its sibling, another impressive bastion against invaders of the Middle Ages.

After walking up to St Michael’s Fortress, we walked down and crossed the road to walk up to Barone Fortress which also afforded fantastic views of Sibenik Old Town and beyond. The walk up to Barone was steep, but it was worth every step
